Star Wars wouldn’t be the same without his endless sequences of seemingly unintelligible beeps, bops and whirrs, but what is R2-D2 really trying to say?
That’s what Star Wars fan EclecticMethod set out to discover as they trawled through the sci-fi space opera films in order to relay R2’s rather important messages back to the viewing public.
The results were fascinating – and occasionally a little foul-mouthed.
We personally hope Episode VIII director Rian Johnson has finished his crossword and is watching, though. We’d love R2 subtitles next time around.
